The Big Lie About Israel & The Rapture by Chuck Baldwin

Freedom From Delusion: The Big Lie

“I am convinced that Cyrus Scofield was an agent of the Rothschild’s and that his reference Bible was deliberately used to blind Christians to what the true nature and purpose of the soon-to-be modern State of Israel was. And it worked—BIG TIME.”

According to some prophecy preachers, the Rapture is supposed to take place tomorrow, July 27, 2018. The reason for this prediction is due to the fact that there is going to be another “blood” moon tomorrow—the longest “blood” moon in this century, they say.

But that doesn’t stop these prophecy kooks from constantly predicting the date of the Rapture. Practically every Jewish holiday or feast day, “blood” moon or unusual solar occurrence will prompt some prophecy-obsessed preacher somewhere to predict the Rapture will take place on that date. (It would take volumes to talk about all of the predictions that prophecy preachers have made regarding when the Rapture will take place over the past seventy years.)



Of course, after the predicted date comes and goes, there is always another predicted date. And after the Rapture doesn’t occur tomorrow, the same televangelists and prophecy preachers will continue to predict future dates, and people will continue to believe and support these false prophets. Don’t ask me to explain people’s gullibility with all of that. It’s just the way it is.

Mind you, I was educated in dispensational prophecy doctrines myself. I was taught them, I believed them and, for over thirty years, I taught them to others. (I’ve asked God to forgive me for that, and now I’m doing my best to try and awaken people to those egregiously erroneous teachings.) So, I am very familiar with the way it all works.

The catalyst for the obsession with prophetic futurism was basically two things: 1) the massive acceptance by fundamentalist/evangelical Christians of the Scofield Reference Bible (originally published in 1909 and revised in 1917) and 2) the creation of the Zionist State of Israel in 1948.

Scofield convinced a majority of Christians that Christ’s return was in two parts: the Rapture (which was imminent) and Second Coming. He treats the Rapture and Second Coming as two distinct events separated in time by a span of seven years, with the first 3½ years known as “The Tribulation” and the second 3½ years known as “The Great Tribulation.” This understanding was based on Scofield’s misinterpretation of Daniel’s Seventy Weeks prophecy in the Old Testament Book of Daniel. And, of course, when Israel came into existence in 1948, Christians became convinced that this was the beginning of prophetic end-time events—and the rest, as they say, is history.

I well remember preachers telling people back in the 1970s that the Rapture was going to take place in 1988—forty years after the inception of modern Israel. They based that prediction on the passage of Scripture where Jesus said:

Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. (Matthew 24:32-34 KJV)

These preachers said that the fig tree putting forth leaves was Rothschild’s Israel (no, most Christians do not understand modern Israel’s connection to Rothschild Zionism—to this very day, they do not make the connection. In fact, they do not even know what Rothschild Zionism is), and since a Biblical generation is most commonly forty years, the Rapture HAD to take place in 1988 (some said 1981 to allow for the seven year “Tribulation”), because Jesus said THAT generation would not pass until it was all (Christ’s Second Coming) fulfilled. Obviously, 1988 was thirty years ago, and the Rapture did not take place.

Hence, prophecy preachers have had to adjust and readjust their interpretations of that passage of Scripture several times now.

My point is, all of this date-setting about the Rapture is nothing new. It’s been going on ever since the Scofield Reference Bible saturated evangelical Christianity and the State of Israel came into existence.

One of the things I have come to understand about prophetic futurism is that EVERYTHING HINGES ON ISRAEL. That’s why prophecy preachers and dispensational Bible teachers are obsessed with modern Israel. To them, Israel is at the core of their understanding of prophecy. I will even dare to say that, to them, Christ is not the focus of prophecy; Israel is.

This flagrant misinterpretation of Scripture (popularized by Scofield) has turned modern Israel into a god in the eyes of many Christians. Oh, they would never admit to committing the sin of idolatry with Israel, but in truth, that is exactly what many of them are doing.

After much study on the subject, I am convinced that Cyrus Ingerson Scofield was an agent of the Rothschild’s and that his reference Bible was deliberately used to blind Christians to what the true nature and purpose of the soon-to-be modern State of Israel was. And it worked—BIG TIME. To most Christians today, modern Israel is a “miracle of God”—a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy—and the atheistic, Talmudic, Kabbalistic Jews who control the Zionist state are “God’s Chosen People.”

As a result, America (thanks to seventy years of indoctrination by tens of thousands of pastors, radio and TV preachers, churches and Bible colleges and seminaries) has literally become a doormat (and puppet) for Israel.

No country on earth could attack a U.S. Navy vessel (the USS Liberty) and kill 34 American Sailors and Marines with complete and total impunity. Beyond that, the U.S. government (with the assistance of the mainstream media) deliberately and aggressively covered up this attack and even apologized on behalf of the attacking country. No country on earth could get by with such a thing. No country, that is, except Israel.

In addition, most of America’s invasions, bombings, military conflicts and wars over the past several decades (including the current ones) have been little more than proxy wars for Israel. Pro-Israel policies and agendas literally dominate America’s politics, news media and entertainment industries—not to mention most churches, of course. And the Donald Trump presidency has only deepened Christians’ infatuation (even obsession) with Israel-driven, Israel-focused prophecy.

No, the Rapture will not take place tomorrow—or the day after that. The whole Scofield/dispensationalist/futurist/Israel-based prophecy doctrines are egregious error. These doctrines have produced and are producing great harm to the Church and to our country. In fact, these doctrines are resulting in great death and destruction as evil forces are manipulating these doctrines to inflict much war and bloodshed around the world.

This is another reason why I am enthusiastically promoting Christopher Bollyn’s new book The War On Terror: The Plot To Rule The Middle East.

As I wrote in this column last week, What If Everything We’ve Been Told Is A Lie? What if everything we’ve been told about 9/11 and the “War on Terror” is a lie? And indeed it is.

The government and media have misled us about 9/11 in order to compel public opinion to support the War on Terror.

Why have we gone along with it? Do we accept endless war as normal? Are we numb to the suffering caused by our military interventions?

No. We have simply been propagandized into submission. We have been deceived into thinking that the War on Terror is a good thing, a valiant struggle against terrorists who intend to attack us as we were on 9/11.

Behind the War on Terror is a strategic plan crafted decades in advance to redraw the map of the Middle East. 9/11 was a false-flag operation blamed on Muslims in order to start the military operations for that strategic plan. Recognizing the origin of the plan is crucial to understanding the deception that has changed our world.

The people who are perpetuating the lies about 9/11 and the “War on Terror” most certainly will not appreciate or accept Bollyn’s book. And there will be many people—including Christians—who are very comfortable believing the lies about 9/11 and the “War on Terror” who will not appreciate it either.

        Paulp here is scripture all of those that have been sucked into the rapture lie always refer to: “to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”

        Can you please show in this scripture us how Paul is saying the Lord will return to heaven and that where the saints will be, in heaven?

        If you can not do so Can you show us other scriptures stating after Christ comes down in the clouds He then returns to the 3rd heaven ?

        Paul does say after the Saints meet Christ in the air they will always be where ever He is and I totally believe that — I just have never found even one scripture stating the Saints are going to the third heaven – ever.

        I have asked lots of you rapture folks and none to date can point out one.

        I guess it is a very very secret event.

    • Truthseeker

      Paulp the Word of God tells us when Jesus Christ returns and when the First Resurrection takes place, at the Last of 7 Trumpet plagues and those 7 trumpets are the 7th Seal.

      Christ returns at the Last Trump and the Saints of God, those dead and those alive, rise to meet Christ in the air before then landing on the mount of olives.

      Show us the scripture stating when this rapture takes place?
